Ran out of time to edit so this was what I wanted to say:
I did the starting knot at the 6th grommet at the top (T6), threaded it down and through T8, back up through T6, pulled tension, then threaded it through T10. I did it this way so that I could clamp T6 and T8 with a regular Yonex flying clamp.
Also, I was experimenting with top-down stringing and I prefer my top cross string to be as high as possible, for three reasons:
1. I didn't string at high tension (23x25)
2. I wanted to protect the mains that would have otherwise been vulnerable to breakage from a mishit.
3. Aesthetics: to me it looks better having an asymmetric distribution of crosses between the top and bottom of the frame with the bottom having more space between the frame and the first cross.
Where do you put your tie offs for two piece stringing? I just broke a main trying to mine it for the last cross. I want going to do the last cross but I decided I needed to to free up the last shared hole for a knot.
Really annoyed as it's a waste of string and I was going to test it tomorrow.
4 days delivery from Taiwan to UK. Amazing! Review will have to wait.
- Both is within budget
- From what I hear the MX60 is a tad stiffer than the XP80
Anybody can shed some light on the performance of both of these?
The review on first post did not draw a clear line.
I've got MX60 and XP70. So far the MX60 is slightly more powerful, maybe thats the flex helping, but the XP70 is catching up. The MX60 stays in my bag now as the XP70 is SO fast I don't mind sacrificing some power. Also it's about half the price.
Here is my 2 cent. I've been using the MX-60 (2) and XP-70 (1) over 6 months now (longer with the MX-60). I love the MX-60 and did not really like my XP-70 until last month. No idea why the racquet feels better now than when I first got it though I felt the MX-60 feels a bit more solid for me than the XP-70. My XP-70 has a bit more power than MX-60, maybe because it's 300mm. Some how BG-80 and BG-99 plays better on MX-60 and Zymax 65, 62 plays better on XP-70. I would have hard time choosing which one to get if both prices are the same ...just got anothe XP-70 last week Hope I did not mess up your choices. good luck!
